I received the parts for my new CO2 setup however I made a mistake in
ordering the minimatic adapters 15006-3-NP-PKG instead of the 15006-3-PKG,
the ones I received are 1/4" NPT (looks like an acme thread) but my
regulator has a sandard thread. Unfortunately my job doesn't allow me to
reach my local clippard distributor during business hours so I ordered
everything directly from Clippard. Seeing these are sold in packs of 10 I
thought I would first ask if anyone has extras left over from past purchases
who would be willing to sell me one. I'd hate to have to pay another $10
packing fee plus shipping :(

Curious. 1/4" NPT is standard pipe thread. The only difference between the two adaptors you mention is nickel plating. Could your regulator have a special fitting attached? The reg's I bought from a local air/welding supply had 11/32" dash-something-or-other hose fittings that I had to remove before a normal pipe fitting would fit. Maybe something similar is on yours? The only other thing I can think of is that Clippard mislabeled the package of adaptors you got.

Anyway, I have an extra adaptor or two floating around you can try, but they're 1/8" NPT (15006-1), so you'll need a reducing bushing. Contact me off list.
